In the wake of their resounding victory in Boston two days ago, the Rangers will look to keep their momentum going against Alain Vigneault’s Philadelphia Flyers. Tonight’s contest is the first of a two game set between these divisional rivals at Madison Square Garden.
The Rangers matched up with the Flyers twice during the month of February, with the Blueshirts earning a 3-2 shootout victory on February 18th, and the Flyers bouncing back with a 4-3 regulation win on the 24th. Six games remain in the season series between these two teams, and tonight’s game will go a long way towards deciding the winner of that series.
Player to Watch: Tarmo Reunanen
While he may be in the lineup due to both Adam Fox and Pavel Buchnevich joining Phil DiGiuseppe on the COVID protocol list, tonight is Tarmo Reunanen’s NHL debut. The Finnish defender has five points in 8 AHL games with the Hartford Wolf Pack this season and was called up earlier today.
